Quarterback Brandon Weeden is holding out for a fourth guaranteed year on his rookie contract, league sources told the Cleveland Plain Dealer on Friday.

Weeden, the 22nd overall pick out of Oklahoma State in April's draft, is slated to receive a four-year deal worth about $8.1 million under the NFL's new rookie wage slotting system.

However, league sources told the Plain Dealer that Weeden wants all four years guaranteed -- not the three guaranteed years that many players selected late in the first round receive.

Weeden is one of 14 first-round picks who have yet to sign as of Friday night. The quarterback, however, is optimistic a deal will get done before training camp opens late next month.

"It'll get done,'' he said. "We're working. It takes two sides, though.''

Weeden is expected to compete with Seneca Wallace and Colt McCoy for the Browns' starting QB job.
